I’m having trouble wrapping my brain around my particular problem.
i have an old Macbook Pro. Cura crashes / beach balls around 2-3hrs into the print. If the print is left to complete, it prints perfectly fine. However, Cura is inoperable.
I’m printing an object I want to print in Black (PLA), Red (PLA), Yellow (PLA), Black (PLA) sections. If this object was going to be under 2 hours, I’d watch it, pause, swap filament, resume, repeat as needed. Unfortunately, since this piece will take about 6 hours, I can’t swap filament past the Red portion because by then Cura Beach balls.
I have the gcode and I split it up by layers so the four files theoretically print the color widths I want. But, I have NO IDEA what to do with the “Start” and “End” gcode so the print does not go through wiping, auto leveling, after the first Black section or cool down for the Black, Red or Yellow sections.
Any advice (short of new computer) would be appreciated.
